Hah I love Chris Pratt:

Quote:
In “Avengers: Infinity War,” Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take on the Mad Titan Thanos. However, before we see the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy fight together towards a common goal, the two factions might have to overcome their own inner-turmoil, at least according to the “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast. Speaking to Fandango, several members of the “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast chimed in on what fans can expect when the Guardians inevitably come face-to-face with the Avengers.

“We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy — we don’t get intimidated!” said Star-Lord himself Chris Pratt. “[Okay] I was a little secretly intimidated. Chris Hemsworth, he’s so tall and handsome — I had to go home and really look myself in the mirror and say, you know, there’s a possibility that you just might be one of those guys who mostly loves your wife but also kind of loves Chris Hemsworth a little bit too.”

Wow, saying pretty much exactly what everyone else was saying. DC is rushing it. They want the payoff without the groundwork.

The Black Company is next on the TV series list apparently:

Quote:
Glen Cook’s epic series The Black Company may be the next fantasy adaptation to make the jump to the television screens—Deadline is reporting that the series is in development with IM Global Television, who are working with Eliza Dushku’s Boston Diva Productions along with David Goyer’s Phantom Four. Dushku, known for her work in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dollhouse, will star as The Lady, a dark sorceress who hires the mercenary Black Company.
Warning: Possible plot spoiler, but I didn't realize they were coming out with a new book set in the same timeline..

Spoiler!

Is it a good book series? I don't read much fantasy anymore but every so often I will (i.e. currently stuck waiting for the next books in The Stormlight Archive, The Broken Earth series, and The Kingkiller Chronicle)

I read it many moons ago, but I remember liking it. However this was before I got into Malazan, or deeper into GoT or Stormlight, WoT.. so I would put it a step below all of those, but still well written, it is a series that has stuck with me over the years though.

Reading Malazan I was reminded of TBC often. I actually prefer the simplicity of TBC over Malazan's complex cluster crap of characters. There are some pretty decent twists and some very likable characters.

Meh..It's totally possible to introduce a plethora of characters at once and have a good movie. Ironically enough that's exactly what GotG did, and Suicide Squad was meant to be DC's answer to GotG. It was a movie filled with lesser known slightly darker characters for a teamup.

What it boils down to at the end of the day is that you actually need to have a good movie with compelling characters. The issue with Justice League isn't that they are introducing characters too fast, it's that DC is simply making movies that are fundamentally flawed on a basic level.
